Ordered and Quantum Treemaps: Making Effective Use of 2D Space to Display Hierarchies

BENJAMIN B. BEDERSON and BEN SHNEIDERMAN,     University of Maryland

MARTIN WATTENBERG,     IBM Research

Treemaps, a space-filling method for visualizing large hierarchical data sets, are receiving increasing attention. Several algorithms have been previously proposed to create more useful displays by controlling the aspect ratios of the rectangles that make up a treemap. While these algorithms do improve visibility of small items in a single layout, they introduce instability over time in the display of dynamically changing data, fail to preserve order of the underlying data, and create layouts that are difficult to visually search. In addition, continuous ...
